Wine 8.0 Released


The latest version includes many improvements including PE conversion.

The Wine team has announced the stable release of Wine 8.0 – a Windows compatibility layer for Unix-based systems, including Linux, macOS, and BSD.

According to the announcement, this release represents a year of development effort and more than 8,600 individual changes. It contains many improvements, with “the main achievement” being the completed conversion to portable executable (PE) format.

“After 4 years of work, the PE conversion is finally complete: all modules can be built in PE format,” the announcement says. “This is an important milestone on the road to supporting  various features such as copy protection, 32-bit applications on 64-bit hosts, Windows debuggers, x86 applications on ARM, etc.”

Wine 8.0 is available for download from the Wine website.
